Now an Assistant Professor of Homeopathy at SCNM, Dr. Udell has a keen interest in the rich insight found in the Homeopathic literature of the 18th and early 19th centuries.

"A Virginia homeopath referred me to Dr. Udell in 2012, and since then Dr.Udell has treated me by Skype for three lengthy periods, ending (at east so far) in early 2018. At every Skype session, and in frequent e-mail contacts in between, Dr. Udell has impressed me with his invariably caring, thoughtful demeanor,and with his knowledge. His front-office assistants are so cheerful, warm, and helpful each time they speak with me by phone that I truly feel I am hearing the Arizona sun. Everyone who deals with Dr. Udell and his assistants would probably choose similar words. The mere contact helps to heal. I have read about homeopathy, with its whole-person approach, its ability to help without putting unnatural, risky substances into my body, and its view of the doctor, however knowledgeable, as a fellow-learner with me in the search for solutions. Homeopathy is therefore profoundly congenial to me. It is a joy to have a doctor who takes the time to listen-- and always with respect and patience. I do extensive blood-testing each year, but for many years have had no conventional physician. I try to follow a healthful diet and lifestyle. I take nutritional supplements but no medications other than homeopathic remedies When problems arise, I want a doctor who will help my body and mind heal themselves. That is exactly what Dr. Udell does for me. During the six years I have consulted Dr. Udell, my problems have been bouts of insomnia, claustrophobia, and anxiety, ED, squamous cell skin cancer, and lower back stiffness. Dr. Udell has helped greatly with the first three problems listed, and has suggested paths for continuing to work on the others. I would tell anyone seeking help for health problems that being able to talk easily, frankly and repeatedly with a doctor like Dr. Udell is in itself a blessing and a first step toward improvement. After obtaining a good understanding of you, he will propose a solution that will soon bring further improvement, without hurting you with risky substances or procedures along the way."
After seeking a number of doctors for chronic, progressive and debilitating stiffness, and having many tests with no diagnosis, I decided to seek the help of a homeopathic, naturopathic physician. Dr. Udell should receive the “Doctor of the Century” award! I have not encountered another doctor as passionate, knowledgeable or committed to patient health. He spent a great deal of time reviewing my health history. An excellent listener, he is accessible and takes time to communicate with the patient to fully understand what is going on and answers questions in a way that is easy to understand. Working with Dr. Udell over the past 21-months has significantly improved my overall health. I have complete confidence in him and am thankful to have met him.
Simply stated, Dr. Eric Udell is a gifted and dedicated doctor who has been committed to improving and restoring my health. I have been suffering from the effects of Lyme disease since 2014. Dr. Udell’s comprehensive and highly effective approach has dramatically improved my symptoms and my health. My primary care physician had no idea how to address this insidious disease other prescribing two months of antibiotics – to no avail. Even the alleged experts at Johns Hopkins were not willing to even see me! Eric has succeeded where no other doctor could. Eric is a great listener who has taken the time to develop an extensive understanding of my health needs in order to analyze and effectively address my symptoms. I live in the Baltimore area and had the privilege of teaching Eric when he was in fifth grade! He made such a tremendous impression on me that when I learned about his practice I reached out to him for help. We have been able to effectively eliminate nearly all of my symptoms strictly through phone conversations. I completely trust Dr. Udell and credit him with restoring my health. I love this guy!
Dr. Udell saved my life!!!! That is what I tell everyone! After being treated for over 25 years for hypothyroidism by an MD I was told that I was a liability to her because my thyroid levels no longer "fit in the box" so she dropped my dosage which put me into a thyroid storm. I thought I was going to die! A friend recommended Dr. Udell, she knew he had experience treating thyroid conditions. From my first visit I knew he was my forever doctor. He took a thorough assessment of my medical history, and was knowledgeable of my condition. He was very compassionate and really listened to me! After prescribing a combination of T4 & T3, he monitored my progress by email and personally called me to see how I was feeling! Recently, I mentioned that I was planning a trip to another country, he took the time and researched what vaccines I needed, any specific medical conditions that were occurring in the country that I should be aware of, and emailed me a list of homeopathy remedies to add to my first aid kit, along with detailed instructions on how and when to use each one. He went beyond what any doctor has ever done for me! I don't know where I would be today without him!
After being diagnosed with Tourette’s Syndrome at the age of 8, my symptoms have been a wild roller coaster. Over the course of nearly 14 years, I have tried a number of different methods to try and help lessen the exhausting tics that I’ve learned to loathe. At one point, just before my 21st birthday, I became overwhelmed. Although I had been able to manage my disorder fairly well for a number of years, I could not longer take it. Everything I thought that was helping suddenly changed, and I fell deep into a prison which seemed impossible to escape. My mother and I decided that together we should try and find assistance in a new way. Almost a full year has passed since I began working with Dr. Udell. My experience has been extremely beneficial. Our sessions are both therapeutic, and geared toward making positive changes in my symptoms by isolating variables and slowly controlling them with naturopathic techniques. I admire Dr. Udell’s passion; he is always working with a myriad of patients, multi-tasking, and playing catch up, and remains to have a contagious positive attitude. His patients adore him and appreciate the first class service he provides in improving their lives and health. For someone seeking an upbeat, refreshing way to improve their health, whether it be general and lacking a central focus, or highly precise like the help I require, I urge you to contact Dr. Udell and his all-star office.
Dr. Udell is a phenomenal doctor. He is very attentive and spends lots of time with you, understanding your entire person prior to prescribing a remedy. He has been my doctor for the past several years and the changes I’ve seen since we first began are incredible. He has cured my asthma and my allergies to dogs (my eyes used to swell up whenever one came close)– and this isn’t even the half of it! Truly incredible, as a person and doctor. Anyone who is not satisfied with their current doctor should definitely consult him.
My initial appointment was one of the best experiences I’ve had in a doctor’s office. Dr. Udell not only showed compassion and patience, but also obvious competence as a clinician. In the many months that followed my first visit I have experienced wonderful improvement in my overall health. Not only is he competent and compassionate, but also thorough in his care. I feel listened to and safely cared for.
When I meet with Dr. Udell I know his only focus is on me and my overall well being. And he will absolutely take whatever time is needed to help me and will actually proactively call me just to make sure things are going well. That is amazing care!! I love you and thank you!
